In 2010, Dr. Tom Waidzunas defended his dissertation, “Drawing the Straight Line: Hierarchies of Evidence in Sexual Reorientation Therapy Debates,” and began a postdoctoral fellowship at Northwestern University. At Northwestern, he has been busy writing, publishing, teaching, and extending his research on attitudes and policy toward gays into the African context.
The department of Sociology is please to announce that Dr. Waidzunas has accepted a tenure-track assistant professor position at Temple University ( in Philadelphia), in the Sociology Dept. which is known for research on gender, sexuality, and inequality, a commitment to public sociology, and the department home where Annette Lareau wrote her path breaking books. He will begin his new position this summer.
Warmest congratulations to Tom!
